In this episode we focus on pollinator-friendly habitat and its inclusion in solar developments. My guest is Rob Davis, Director of the Center for Pollinators in Energy at Fresh Energy, a public interest non-profit based in St. Paul, Minnesota. We start by discussing the energy landscape in Minnesota, and then we get into pollinator-friendly habitat—best practices, finances, and benefits it offers solar developers which can help build support among community and agricultural stakeholders. We close with a look ahead at what Rob thinks the state of pollinator-friendly solar will be in a few years.
